The staffs have many years of experience with high solidarity, responsibility, and compassion, which creates conditions that help children integrate into communities as soon as possible, thereby reducing the burden to families and society.

II. The trip
Participation: 27 people
As the well-prepared plan, we gathered at the gate 1 of International Convention Center at exactly 7 am. We are 27 people from different universities that all have one aim that is to contribute small parts to bring the warm autumn to unhappy children and elderly people in Thuy An center.  At 7:30 am, our trip began. We had a wonderful time together, made new friends and exchanged voluntary experience on the bus. We arrived at the center at 9am then categorized donated stuff. We had 3 groups to go and visit houses for children and elderly people. After that, we visited the cemetery of Thuy An center, where unfortunate souls rest in peace. In the afternoon, we helped the staff clean and take care of disable children . We also had a friendly talk with the director of the center about the trip.
Around 5pm, we went back to Hanoi

The trip truly left an unforgettable  memory on us.
